The sixth generation, although only the third to be sold in Australia, Honda City has gone on sale locally.
Based on the yet-to-arrive-in-Australia next generation Honda Jazz, the new City is available in two trim levels. Both models are fitted with the same 1.5-litre petrol engine kicking out 88kW of power and 145Nm of torque to the front wheels.
The new Honda City range starts with the A$15,990 VTi, which features a reversing camera, air conditioning, cruise control, multi-function trip computer, six airbags, traction and stability control, and a chrome grille. The audio system features a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Siri compatability, an HDMI port, two USB jacks, CD player, AM/FM radio, and four speakers. It also features connectivity to selected smartphone apps, including the subscription-based HondaLink Navigation.
A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, while a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available for a bit extra.
Step up to the A$19,390 VTi-L and you’ll gain CVT, a total of eight speakers for the sound system, climate control, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, chromed exterior and interior highlights, electric folding wing mirrors, front fog lights, extra 12V outlets, push button start, and a proximity entry key.
